ehhhhh... Sorry, but, like the first promo, I find this rather cheesy. I don't like making vague grandiose clamis like "A project like no other!", or in general acting like we're cooler than we really are.
Furthermore, this promo isn't very coherent. It's basically some vague statements that don't say much, some music from the game, and a bunch of random art. I'd like to see something with more structure. Like, show Syne, along with some text describing him. Then show Enna, and describe her. Being that Syne is a Pylos construction worker and Enna is a terrorist trying to destroy Pylos, this should raise some interest.
Be careful about what art you use. Official concepts, stuff by Akio, and anything submitted since v4 is good, but some of that older stuff is gray-area. The 3D-ish image of Titan city can't be used at all, as the image of the city was actually stolen by Gilgath from some random site (his quote: "ya, the original was a painting of Gondolin on some LotR site"). In general, it's probably best to stick to official stuff, because then you're showing stuff that has actually been accepted into the project. I realize there's not a lot of official stuff right now, but that should hopefully change soon.
All that said, I don't know where we'd use a promo. Don't spend an inordinate amount of time working on this when you could be working on one of the posted tasks.
